We had the seafood platter and it was delicious and perfect for 2 people to share. The wine was also the nicest we have had in Sri Lanka. The staff were friendly and the owner took time to come and chat to us as well. Would definitely recommend as has a great atmosphere with a chilled vibe!

The food here was fine but definitely nothing special. Portions were small and both dishes were quite salty.

We were hoping to stay at the Pink Elephant but it was full, and not surprisingly so either! The four of us were welcomed with open arms by Chaminda, the owner, and the rest of the staff for dinner! He was extremely friendly and helpful. The restaurant has a chilled vibe, with warm lighting and a cushioned snug at the... More

This place has a cool vibe to it, great music and excellent service. Sri Lankan jimmy Hendrix waiter is so attentive we thought he had OCD, he wiped our table that much. The food was great, we ordered fried noodles, prawns with ginger and garlic and the chicken kebab and it was really really good. The chicken was the best... More

Pink Elephant is small restaurant with fast and frendly service. We wait only a few minutes and get relly tasty food. We returned back more times.

Nice place, little small, good atmosphere and Chaminda, the owner, made it unforgettable, he cooked a seer fish with some buttered vegetables and some grilled calamari, both really delicious! Nice selection of cocktails. Must try place if you are in Unawatuna. Recommended.

We stumbled upon Pink Elephant on our first night in Unawatuna and subsequently spent a lot of time there. Run by Iranka and his Uncle, we were welcomed with free shisha and fabulous food (great salad which is difficult to come by). Pink Elephant has a lovely relaxed atmosphere and is a incredibly sociable place to spend time. The staff... More

We decided to have dinner at Pink Elephant at 6:40. Anyone else in the restaurant. The food was poor comparing with our before experience in Sri Lanka. Fish filled was a small portion of "tunna" which tasted lime juice accompanied by the worst rice I've ever tried and good chips. However,noodles were better. Night was being reasonable nice when the... More
